Linguistic Semantics

Part of the Synthese Library book series (SYLI, volume 215)


The subject of the previous chapter has been logical semantics. I have stressed the ambiguous relationship of logic and language and discussed the name relation theory, the controversy about intensionalism and extensionalism and have sketched a solution for the traditional difficulties facing extensionalists when trying to explain the difference in meaning of expressions with the same extension.
